A “liquid facelift” is a popular term for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. A combination of dermal fillers, volumizers and Botox can provide a noninvasive solution for a refreshed, rejuvenated look. A liquid facelift works best on faces without significant laxity or advanced signs of aging.
HOW A LIQUID FACELIFT WORKS
As your skin ages it loses collagen and the collagen that remains becomes haphazardly organized. The loss of collagen leads to the appearance of fine lines and creases. At the same time bundles of elastin in the skin lose their spring and the skin begins to sag, most noticeably in the jowls and neck.
For people looking to avoid the downtime of surgery a combination of injectable therapies can be used to create a liquid facelift. In Dr. Kolstad’s La Jolla (San Diego) plastic surgery office common products used to achieve a liquid facelift include:
- Sculptra Aesthetic
During your liquid facelift consultation, Dr. Kolstad will determine what products you will require to help you achieve the look of you desire. Each problem area on the face has a specific treatment, such as Restylane for the eyes, Radiesse for the nasolabial folds and Scultpra for the cheeks. Dr. Kolstad will tailor a unique treatment strategy to meet your individual facial features.
